For a distributed team that uses Git and GitHub as version control, should images also be stored in the git repository?
The images in question are small/medium-sized web-friendly images. For the most part, the images won't be changed. The folder containing them will only grow in size as images are added. A concern is that the image folder may grow to a large size over time by combination of large images or a lot of images.
Is this considered a best practice? What other alternatives are there to sharing binary files needed in projects that a distributed team can easily access?
